Story Time with EMILY JIANG and APRIL CHU
Kepler's Books, Saturday, April 19 at 2pm
Story Time with Emily Jiang and April Chu

Saturday, April 19, 2:00 p.m.

Summoning the Phoenix: Poems and Prose about Chinese Musical Instruments

Join us for a special story time launch party celebrating Emily Jiang's collaboration with April Chu: Summoning the Phoenix: Poems and Prose about Chinese Musical Instruments.

Every musician knows that learning to play an instrument has its challenges and its rewards. There's the embarrassing first day of rehearsal, but also the joy of making friends in the orchestra. There's dealing with slippery concert dress, or simply getting swept up in the music. The twelve children in this book are just like any other musicians practicing their instruments and preparing for a concert.

But what sets these music lovers apart is that they all play traditional Chinese musical instruments in a Chinese orchestra. Including both flights of fancy and practical considerations, lively poems capture each child's musical experience with a different Chinese instrument, while sidebars provide more information about each one. This collection of poetry, full of gorgeous illustrations, depicts each fascinating instrument and takes readers on a delightful musical journey.

Join us to celebrate this joint debut with an afternoon full of Chinese food, musical activities based on their book, and giveaways. And come prepared to learn a Chinese folksong.

Oakland - Literary Karaoke Night
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Saturday, April 19 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland invites you to the store for our first Literary Karaoke Night on Saturday, April 19th at 7pm.

We’ve all enjoyed (or endured, depending on your perspective) musical karaoke. Warbling, heart-felt renditions of “I Will Always Love You” and hand-held “Islands in the Stream” duets – all fueled by a bit of enthusiasm, encouragement and . . . well, more often than not, alcohol. Literary Karaoke is not so different, minus the warbling. We’ll bring the microphone and I bet we can even find a few books lying around if you bring your voices. The steps are simple. Bring something from home or grab a book off one of our shelves, read one or two pages from it, and perhaps just as important . . . listen to everybody else do the same. All we ask is that it not be something you wrote. There are plenty of places to do that. We’re a little different at Diesel, so you’d expect us to do things a bit differently too. (Translated: there just might be a bottle of something strong and distilled, should you need some liquid courage or your voice a smoky rasp.)

Oakland - The Diesel Readers discuss "Spook"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Monday, April 21 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes The Diesel Readers back to the store to discuss Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife by Mary Roach on Monday, April 21st at 7pm.

With her first book, Stiff, the ever-curious Mary Roach explored what happens to our corporeal form after death. In her follow-up book, Spook, she shifts her focus to the ethereal. What happens to the soul? Is there even one to begin with? How can we know? Consulting a range of modern-day soul-searchers – mystics, engineers, scientists, mediums, doctors and gurus – she seeks answers to one of the oldest questions in the world: what happens to us when we die?

This event is free and all are welcome and encouraged to attend!
